Why We Like The Candy 7 Pedals
Crank Brothers Egg Beater pedals are renowned for their mud-shedding power, easy four-sided entry design, and minimalist platform-free construction. For those of us that don't mind a few extra grams and want a bit of platform for added support and security, the Crank Brothers Candy 7 Pedals provide Egg Beater functionality with a platform boasting the new traction pad technology for a boost of supportive confidence wherever the ride takes you.
Appropriate for both mountain and cyclocross applications, the Candy 7 features an open design that sheds mud better than almost any other pedal system for confident cleat engagement in the muckiest conditions. The cleat system allows riders to adjust float and release angle to best meet their needs, and ribbing on the body provides extra traction when not clipped in. Crank Brothers adds in its new traction pad technology, which consists of two rubber pads placed on the pedal body that increase grip and promote effective cleat engagement. The Candy 7s come with one millimeter and two millimeter interchangeable pads, allowing riders to customize the system to best match with their favorite off-road shoes.

Comfortable and durable
- I've put it through the wringer
- 5' 10"
I?ve been on crank brothers pedals for a long time. Many years and miles. Mountain and gravel bike. My knees feel better due to their float. The 15 degree float is more than enough to mask anything but perfect alignment while installing the cleat to you shoes. The Candy 7 is the ?Goldielocks? of the range. You get the better bearings but still a steel spindle. A lighter spindle material sacrifices durability for weight savings. Really, any pedal in this range is going to be great. Reading some other reviews here and I?ve experienced all the negative ones with any pedal. It?s a consumable item on a bike much like a chain or cassette.

Happy I moved to Crank Brothers!
- I've used it several times
- 5' 9"
So happy I moved to Crank Brothers from Shimano XT pedals! Never moving back! Shimano XT personally felt too difficult to clip in and work on.
